Rudy Gobert scored 21 points and added 16 rebounds and three blocks, as France beat Team USA 89-79 and advanced to the World Cup Semifinals.
Myles Turner and Brook Lopez had no answers for the French center who played 34 minutes and anchored their defense while doing damage on the other side of the floor as well. Team USA struggled overall and Pop opted to play small-ball but that wasn’t enough as well. France will now face Argentina on Friday while US will return home with empty hands.
